The Mother's Day Weigh

Happy Mother's Day to ya!  Who knows what's gonna happen today?  I told the hubster that I picked up the cards for his mom and he asked if I picked up one for myself as well. Since that was a big NEGATORY, I assume that my day will be filled with him sitting around the house waiting for a job to come in and me spending time sitting around with the kids.  I realize that this doesn't sound very active, but with 10 blisters on my feet, and day after 5k feeling like I'd been hit by a truck, sitting around is about as active as I can be right now.  A massage would have been nice today.  Should have preplanned that...

The weigh in is what it is today.  285.8.  I think I may have some swelling from yesterday though, so I am betting that next week will be better.

In the face of my unemployment, I have decided that I am going to need to really regiment myself.  I have set some goals...both weight loss and otherwise (not necessarily in this order).

1.  Find a job
2.  Use time off to prep for RUNNING at least PART of the Komen
3.  Use time off as a springboard for some MAJOR weight loss
4.  Enjoy my life and my kids
5.  Obtain and maintain a CLEAN House.

We'll see what happens.


  1. Those sound like reasonable goals. =) I'm glad you're not beating yourself up about your weigh-in, swelling and stress could definitely be big cause to it.

    Happy mother's day!!! Hopefully your kids/hubster will surprise you.

  2. Happy Mother's Day!

    Take the day off of housework (I'm trying...and my husband is sitting around and I'm with the kids...and the messy house, too. LOL!). Do something for yourself today! Drop the kids in his lap and go out for a walk. You deserve some healthy "me-time"! Go get it!!!!

  3. I would do no5 first. I find it is such a major RESULT when the house is clean and tidy it gives me enthusiasm to get going with other things...I'm not a very tidy person but I love seeing it all done.
    Realistic goals...sounds a really good plan to me

  4. Good goals, I like that they aren't just about weight loss, but they are about life.

  5. I think it's great to have goals! Keeps you focused! Happy Mother's Day!
